My employer doesn't have their plants in the ground yet either. The other day a big delivery truck unloaded flat after flat after flat of plants just outside of my work door. See, the people that keep up the gardens have a shop/garage in the back of my building. And I have the privilege of watching the gardener's activities! Oh, what a sight this was...all of those flowers waiting to get into the dirt!
Which brings me to my measly one flat of plants. Monday night I quickly ran through WalMart's plant section and picked out one flat of plants.
Tuesday and Wednesday in my part of the Frozen Tundra found temperatures over 100 degrees! What a phenomenon for us. One I can't say I really enjoyed. The humidity and heat index made it hard to breathe outside. It was too hot to be outside planting flowers after work.
It did cool off last night so I grabbed my gardening gloves, the Miracle Grow and my plants for a night of planting.
My deck has flower boxes built on the outside on three sides. Here are my plants getting a peek at where they will be living.
All tucked in and ready to grow, grow, grow.
So pretty and full of joy.
I look forward to many evenings sitting on the deck enjoying my flowers.
I may have to swing by the garden store on my way home from work tomorrow...spring planting is amazingly fun.
